A Flood Watch and a Winter Storm Watch are out for the entire region late Tuesday through early Thursday. Heavy rain develops Tuesday night into Wednesday morning and may put down 1”-3” in some areas. Arctic air pushes in from west to east on Wednesday with heavy sleet and snow taking over. That setup could produce several inches of accumulation. Snow will slowly end from west to east Thursday as bitterly cold air continues to push in.
SLADE, Ky. (WKYT) - There are several new babies being celebrated at the Kentucky Reptile Zoo in Slade. The Powell County facility has managed to successfully breed King Cobras.
The snakes began hatching this week. The zoo says King Cobras are rarely bred in captivity. The snake is disappearing in the wild and its venom is needed for cancer research.
The first hatchling debuted Thursday. The King Cobra is the longest venomous snake in the world and one of the most deadly.
